|Molecular Evolution -- Groks Science Show 2007-01-17 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
Tracking the evolutionary changes that give rise to new species has become more refined with the advent of molecular biological tools. Changes in DNA sequences over time can now be measured across species to provide a genetic picture of evolution in action. On this program, Prof. Sean B. Carroll discussed these new findings.
